NTPC is planning to start construction work on super thermal power plant at Darlipalli in Sundergarh district of Orissa from January 2013.
Work on 1600 MW (2×800) coal based power plant will commence on soon after getting possession of land from the state government that is expected by December 2012. The plant requires 1,652 acre. The state government will get 50 per cent power from super thermal power plant. The project will be commissioned within four years after work starts on it.
